I didn't see a whole lot of shows, but this was probably the most fun. I was kind of uptight at the first show, because I had to rush to Red Rocks from work, and I was stressed about being able to find my friends. But for this one I had the whole day off and was nice and relaxed.
It was rainy when they let folks in, or it was threatening to rain. But right before the first set, the clouds parted over the hill behind the amphitheater. It was absolutely gorgeous. That's right when the acid kicked in.
My friends and I were all seated pretty high up, so we could see all of Denver off in the distance.
All these years later, what I remember most is Bird Song and the Other One. Listening now again, I'm enjoying pretty much all of it. I'm only part way through the first set, but so far so good.
I have to say, it is so weird finding these recordings. I haven't tripped for more than 20 years. But listening to this, I can see that night, and feel it all over again. It's kind of exhilerating.
